Welcome, Retrievers!

Retrievers Pennant

It’s the right place, at a weird time.

While things on campus look a little different than we are used to right now, we want to reassure you that you chose the right place.

Welcome Week is one of UMBC’s favorite traditions. At the beginning of each semester, departments and offices from across campus come together to welcome new and returning students back to UMBC. As a new student, you can expect outreach from current students, faculty, and staff; information on virtual group activities; suggested transition workshops, videos, modules, and resources; and opportunities to meet other new students.

The Welcome Week website is meant to show you the different ways you can participate in Welcome Week activities, work with new students, or take part in high impact experiences to connect you with your fellow Retrievers. Take a moment to view the site and find ways you can connect, and be sure to check back to this page and our myUMBC group for updates and information.

Questions? Email welcomeweek@umbc.edu and a Campus Life staff member will get back with you as soon as possible!

We can’t wait to see you!
